28 Days of Love: Day 28

Thursday night, I had the honor of attending a  Colorado Youth at Risk shareholder meeting with Sue.  

The volunteer work that Sue does for this organization is something she feels incredibly passionate about. She is leading up the effort to recruit 90 mentors for the new launch courses in April for George Washington High School and Aurora Central High School.

She has made a huge difference in the lives of the young girls she has mentored. Both Juli and Vanessa graduated from high school. Juli in 2008 and Vanessa in 2009. Vanessa is a recipient of the Daniels Fund scholarship program and currently has a 4.0 grade point average.

I was thrilled to see Sue receive an award at this meeting in recognition of her time, treasure and talent she brings to these young people and this organization.

Sue loves what  she does, loves the young people she continues to stand for and inspires me every day as she makes a difference in the community we live in.
